For someone who has a blog focused on sweets and desserts, I have a major sour tooth. When given a choice, I would pick sour and tart over sweet. Give me sour candies, sour gummies, and tart drinks any day and I would happily accept.
The heat of the past couple of days has got me craving something tart and refreshing. This mango mint limeade slush passes all my requirements. The sweet mango, cooling mint, and hydrating coconut water balances out the otherwise super tart lime juice. When blended together, a delicious drink ensues. And if you happen to wanna party…well, rum or vodka is a perfect and welcome addition to this drink.
When it comes to blended drinks, I hate ice. Ice eventually melts and dilutes the drink. For this slush, I used frozen mango to give the drink that nice texture. (Similar to when I make blended coffee drinks at home, I use frozen coffee cubes.) You could also try freezing coconut water in ice cube trays for additional slushy-ness.
I’m totally in love with this mango mint limeade because it reminds me of sour green mangos. Whenever I would visit the Philippines, I would eat my weight in green mangos. I like to slice them like apples and dip them in a rock sea salt and chili powder mixture. It makes my mouth water just thinking about that snack.
